and hate fabric softener? Or am I a bit odd?

Redpriestandmozart Sun 30-Mar-14 23:17:06

Totally agree, hate soft towels. I like them to rip skin grin

Nope YANBU, I love my towels crunchy. I find soft towels don't dry me.

YANBU. Me too.

I love rough towels too! Not only do they dry you quicker, they buff your skin!

Devora Sun 30-Mar-14 23:21:15

Yep, and it means you don't have to buy body scrub.

I like a towel to actually dry me but I hate crunchy hard towels! Like rubbing yourself dry with sandpaper :/

Exfoliate and dry at the same time, what's not to like smile

Same here, crunchy is good and fabric conditioner smells awful.

Yep - another crunchy towel peep here too.

Crunchier the better as far as I'm concerned. My mother's could take off a layer of skin, I think we might use a slightly less harsh detergent but it's certainly conditioned me and sibs to prefer a crunchy towel.

No, you're normal. It's them softener addicts that are odd.

I think it's some kind of alien thing, myself. POD PEOPLE.

Seriously, Drying yourself with something coated in lubricant? Perverse.

Another vote for crunchy (especially if they're on a warm radiator .. hmmm)!

yanbu. crunchy towels are great. even when I had a tumble drier I dried all my towels on the line cos they went crunchy even if I'd used softener.

am I the only one who thinks softener doesn't actually soften anything, it just leaves a nice smell?

I also love crunchy sheets and pillow cases and duvet covers but you only ever get them crunchy when they're brand new

shudders at you crunchy towel lot, I can't even take washing out machine unless it been doused in my lovely smelling comfort cos it makes me go weird. I need soft and fluffy tumbled dried towels.

KissesBreakingWave Sun 30-Mar-14 23:33:25

Softener is some kind of addictive drug. Once you start using it, it gets you. IT DOES NOTHING APART FROM MAKE YOU WANT TO USE IT AGAIN. Apart from, as mentioned upthread, making your clothes smell of petrochemical shite. Extra rinse, dry 'em properly, job's a good 'un.

WillieWaggledagger Sun 30-Mar-14 23:35:10

Yes yes rough as possible preferably line dried so they smell of fresh air

lessonsintightropes Sun 30-Mar-14 23:35:49

Softener makes me itch a bit although I admit the smell is nice. I love it when the weather is reliable enough to dry outdoors though, nothing beats that smell/crunchy combo.

Can't beat that line dried smell, love it.

Is there a crunchy towel club ? grin

BethCalavicci Mon 31-Mar-14 01:22:09

We never use fabric softener. Always pumped full of perfume and shit and when we're a family of sensitive and eczema prone skin we avoid it like the plague.
Normal non bio wash and then either line dired (if the weather's good!) or tumble dried/radiator dried.

BethCalavicci Mon 31-Mar-14 01:22:45

line dried not dired blush
